Worrisome Matchups in Houston
Don’t panic yet, but Chris Young is scheduled to pitch tonight, in Houston.
We might have a problem.
Chris Young surrenders more fly balls than just about any pitcher in baseball, while the Astros put more fly balls in the seats than just about any other team in baseball , as well as playing in the launch pad known as Minute Maid Mark.
We will also see Kris Medlen make his 2015 debut in a rather tumultuous environment against a team that is pretty stacked.
Medlen also throws about 60% fastballs, a pitch that the Astros feasted on in 2015.
We can be encouraged by the fact that Medlen did register a 1.20 ERA over 30 IP in road games last season.
So there’s that.
